Growing the soup kitchen has never been our dream.
We simply want to ensure if a person in our community is hungry, they are fed. Unfortunately, the need for our services has continued to grow and we are currently serving over 3,000 meals a month. We are blessed by the community support, volunteers, food donations, and food rescue efforts. However, we find ourselves requiring additional space for food storage and resources, so that we may continue to provide this essential service to our patrons. In an effort to support these needs, we have fundraising campaigns throughout the year.
How the program works:
Farmers Feeding the Flock is our second largest annual fundraiser. This endeavor is a beautiful example of a partnership between our soup kitchen and local agricultural leaders to raise funds to feed the hungry. How it works:
A local farmer provides acreage for planting.
Bread of Life asks for in-kind gifts from local agriculture businesses as well as donations from our donors to help offset the cost of soil preparation, planting, fertilization, and harvest.
After the growing season, crops are harvested and sold.
Greensburg Community Bread of Life then receives all net profits to support expansion needs.
Would you consider partnering with Bread of Life by "helping us grow..one acre at a time"? Any donation, no matter its size, will make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
Farmers Feeding the Flock 2020 field sponsor is S & G Farms.

The 2020 Farmer’s Feeding the Flock donated field is located just east of S&G’s seed plant on County Road 300 N. Bread of Life has signs identifying the field that is planted. We would like to encourage you to drive out and take a look at the field you are helping to sponsor.
